Mirrorless cams are way over priced for now and that will always keep them as a niche market.

I would say that E-PM2+kit lens is about the same price and same IQ as an entry-level DSLR (say, a D3200). That seems reasonable to me.

No viewfinder , no flash for same price as the D3200 which has a flash and viewfinder. m43 is more expensive as a system, but atleast if they keep the entry level cost cheaper, more people will try them out.

I think olypus wants to make money on them, to make up for losses in fixed lens cameras.  That is why once you add a evf its more than the 3200.  It does have a flash that comes with it, but you need to attach it.

Hopefully if olympus can get their costs under control they can do some more development and have a pl5+evf sucessor, be around the same price as an entry level dslr.

Panasonic and Sony are right there also.  Sony sells a vf less Nex with pop up flash for less money.  Panasonic last generation is quite low priced.

Nikon 1 has a fast tracking auto-focus system

Give them anouther year and they will gain more market share.  BTW when mirrorless ilc shipments dropped 18.5% last quarter yoy, DSLRs dropped 23.2%.

I am suprised the headline wasn't cheap compacts dying, DSLRs losing ilc market share to mirrorless models.  m4/3 and NEX are the two leading systems.  I would be great if samsung jointed one of them, and m4/3 gets it's EOS adapter done.
